So many contributors have mentioned the names of those listed below that I decided to post on this bulletin board part of the passenger list of the "Earl of Donegal", which landed in Charleston, SC on December 22, 1767.

Before I found the passenger list of the Earl of Donegal, my cousin Harvey Baxter STEWART (buried in a cemetery west of Highway 21 a few miles south of Great Falls) told me that our Stewart family had been friends and neighbors of the White family before leaving Ireland, which adds meaning to their proximity on the list.

This passenger list states names, dates of birth, ages, and the number of acres of land passengers received under the "BOUNTY ACT". Heads of household received 100 acres, plus 50 acres per dependant.

John White received 450 acres (100 acres as head of his family plus 350 acres because he had seven dependants).

My ancestors James and Rose Stewart received a "royal grant" of 150 acres on Stover Creek. Since they were not listed after all members of the White family, I suspect that Rose was the daughter of Eleanor White.

Eleanor received a 100 acre royal land grant. Because of their proximity on this passenger list, Eleanor White was probably related to John White, and may have been his sister in law or his widowed elder sister.

Eleanor's husband may have died at the disastrous battle of Culloden in 1745, after which Anglo-Saxon Judeo-Christians began exterminating Keltic/Viking Scots like Hebrews had the Kelts' Hittite ancestors according to Deuteronomy 7.

Eleanor is more likely to have been Rose's mother since Ann and John White had children every couple years regularly beginning eight years after Rose Stewart was born, so were probably married after 1750.

Rose Stewart was born in 1745 when Ann White was about 18 years old, and when Eleanor White was about 28 years old, so may have been the daughter of either.

An Elizabeth White was granted 100 acres but is not named on this passenger list, so may have been the same person as Eleanor White.

John White 1720 | 47 450
Ann White 1727 | 40
William White 1753 | 14
Margaret White 1756 | 11
Helen White 1758 | 9
Isabell White 1760 | 7
Jannet White 1762 | 5
Victoria White 1764 | 3
James Stewart 1741 | 26 (150 to John Stewart)
Rose Stewart 1745 | 22

(100 to Elizabeth White)
Eleanor White 1717 | 50 100

Many other Chester County families may see their ancestors listed on the complete passenger list of the Earl of Donegal, which is posted at
